Sydney, Apr 30 (ANI): Sukhcharanjit Singh, who has been charged for allegedly helping a killer driver flee Australia on a false passport, has been ordered to stand trial by a court.

"Twenty-one-year-old Singh pleaded not guilty to improperly providing driver Puneet Puneet with his passport and perverting the course of justice," reported The Herald Sun.

Puneet fled to India, while he was out on bail for culpable driving over the death of nineteen-year-old Queenslander Dean Hofstee.

It is reported that Puneet was drunk and travelling at 148km/h in a 60km/h zone, when he hit Hofstee outside a Southbank Hotel in October 2008.

Singh accepted that he gave Puneet his passport, but claimed the act was done so that Puneet could get him a credit card. (ANI)
